attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakistan from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the deaths of dozens of people, including up to 48 of the captured workers. algerian forces say they recovered at least 25 bodies after storming the militant held gas complex saturday, bringing the confirmed death toll to
if she doesn't run? inconceivable! at a time when the obama administration has come under fire, even from yours truly for the boy's club inner circle, democrats may be on track to have an all-white male primary in 2016 if hillary did stay out. joining us is former new york city deputy public advocate and founder of girl who is code, an organization dedicated to equipping young women with the skills to pursue opportunities in tech and engineering and she is here to talk about a few women and didn't need the binder full of women. >> no. >> nice. >> i was looking at the fact in congress and in the senate, women more represented in the democratic party than in the republican party. >> right. >> but looking at who holds the governors' officers around the country, republicans are doing better than democratic and that's the traditional path to the presidency. are we doing something wrong in the democratic party to set women up to really be able to take that step and break that ultimate glass ceiling? >> look. i think we -- president obama showed you don't have to be a governor to get to the pres

we took aggressive action. our conference of mayors engage direct with the obama administration and congress through every step of fiscal cliff negotiations. at the national press club on september 15, we released a letter to vice president scott smith, our second vice president kevin johnson and i drafted, 131 of our mayors sign, calling on congress to adopt a bipartisan and balanced approach deficit reduction by incorporating spending cuts with additional revenue. we took the same message to both political conventions and to the presidential debate where mayors of both parties were active and visible participants, speaking for commonsense solutions to the pending fiscal crisis. in just one week after the election, our leadership came to washington. we met with the vice president biden in the white house, the entire house democratic leadership, senate majority caucus, and rising leaders such as senator marco rubio, and other key decision-makers, pushing for action to the fiscal cliff. during those meetings we made it known that cities have already led on deficit reduction. mayo
that is happened over the last four years, helping the obama administration, our president, vice president with their agenda, with talking about the needs for more jobs and courts, and i've been amazed she understood the health care law better than anyone and willing to share talking points with me when i couldn't understand the confusion some were creating because they had not read the bill, but she did, and, of course, my most amazing time with debbie was throughout the republican primary process when we would show up and in iowa, new hampshire, and other places, often looking weird being in a sea of republicans, and i said, you know, the only way to fit in is we just wear red and pretend to be sarah palin.

. they sound like comments from a man who is about to leave the obama administration which he is. the president in his inaugural address said a decade of war is ending. when he accepted the democratic presidential nomination on september 6th. he said al qaeda is on the road to defeat. five days later, ambassador chris stevens, three other americans, killed in libya. we see the french in operation in mali against an air i can't -- area that al qaeda terrorists carved out the size of texas. as you mentioned this terrible hostage-taking in algeria where there are at least 37 dead and quite likely more. the war on global terrorism is far from over. and so secretary panetta may want to talk to the president about that. >> what we've seen, the war against terrorism and the obama administration has existed in drone strikes in terms of the major mo. we know that we're obviously, you know, on the road to pulling out of afghanistan and iraq so that is clearly what the president is referring to but would you be surprised to see an attack against moktar, who led the attack and looking for attention in the
. and today vice president joe biden urged america's mayors to to help the obama administration in their efforts reduce gun violence. speaking at the u-s conference of mayors in washington today. biden says he doesn't want a repeat of tragedies such as last months school massacre in connecticut. >> i have been in this fight for a long time i have no illusions of the house distortions will come from all sides. and i know full well the political obstacles are not impenetrable. yesterday. president obama urged congress to adopt several other gun control measures. such as banningcapacity magazines. the vice president says the administration is ready to take on the politicalbiden also dismissed the n-r-a's proposal to place in america. >> pam: is tiger woods trying to get his way back? coming up, gary radnich. in a good evening, everybody let us take a look. >> we are going to get ready for a great football game. last year tophet we had a chance and is now this year we are going to find out who we play. now we can get ready to take care of business. >> tony gonzales with 18 years in
, specifically the president's children, to illustrate what he calls elitist hypocrisy. the obama administration called that repug nant and cowardly. maria kor don't na and will cane are joining us. welcome to both of you. >> thank you, carol. >> maria, the president highlighted one little girl in particular. her name is julia stokes. she's 7 years old. she wrote this moving letter telling the she was afraid to lose her brother and sisters and rush limbaugh mocked her and the other children in attendance. >> i've been watching the children as human shields show that is now going on at the white house. boy, these guys are somber. biden was very somber. would have thought -- i've worked with this guy 27 hours a day. president barack obama. yay. the kids cheer. the president starts reading letters from the kids, got to do what the kids want, got to answer all of the letters from santa claus. got to do everything they want. but it is -- it's stunning. you look at what's happening in the country. >> should kids be in a position to be mocked, maria? >> certainly i agree that limbaugh is limbaugh and n
of an obama-biden administration? well, a vast majority say, according to the latest fox news opinion poll. what do you think of government spending, is it managed carefully or out of control? right now 83% of you say it's out of control. back in april of 2009, when they were just getting started with the stimulus, 62. so, it's gone up 21% in about the last four years. >> alisyn: i find that wording, also amusing. who thinks the government spending is being managed carefully. 11% is actually the shocking number. >> the shocking word is managed. >> alisyn: and carefully. >> a fire hose of cash. i will say the best thing the president can do for his legacy and starting to talk, i don't think that the president needs a library and now talking he wants a library maybe in chicago. talking about his legacy, most important thing he could do is tax reform and deficit control. if he could put those two things together, that'd be bigger than health care. >> steve: you know what? if he were to work with the republicans talking reform-- >> i think that's a lock for next year. >> steve: well, he wants
for service, has the obama administration done a lot to lower the cost of health care going forward so we don't need to do much more? what do you think is in practical terms what needs to be done on health care if you poll people they say we all want to cut medicare celerity want to go dealing with that piece of the puzzle? >> that reminds me when i was in graduate school i went to study foreign policy and was right around the time they balanced the budget and i thought my gosh what am i going to do? so i realized the long-term problems were still there and i had to make a choice whether social security or health care and it was easy, social security is easy supply jumped into becoming a social security expert because health care is so hard. they're really is no other issue at the core of all of this. we don't know the answers and the best thing that we can do right now is putting in place as many different attempts to control health care costs and evaluating what works so we don't with a fork or not we've seen the costs coming down, and that could be in anticipation that could be temporary a
of america's mental health care services. officials from the obama administration examine current challenges focusing on the relationship between mental health and gun violence. this is 2.5 hours. >> of the committee on health and education will please come to order. my first order of business this morning is to extend a warm welcome to our committees new members. i also want to salute our new ranking member, senator alexander. he is a valuable member of this committee. i have appreciated my relationship with a former ranking member. i look forward to the same kind of close collaboration partnership with my good friend. our committee will examine a range of issues surrounding mental health care in this country. the tragic shooting in connecticut last month brought the issue of mental health care to the forefront. many people across the nation have said we need to take a long look at access to mental health services across the country. i am pleased to have this opportunity to start the dialogue. i am told this is a first hearing that this committee of jurisdiction has had on this issue since
up the latino vote. going forward in his second term, the obama administration can expect the latino community will keep a close eye on whether or not the president can deliver his promise on comprehensive immigration reform. nick valencia, cnn. >> so given the la to inknow voter support, it is no surprise the president has set immigration reform as a top priority for his second term. now gun control has also vaulted to the top of that list. those are also big priorities for los angeles mayor antonio villaraigosa. he joins me now. it's always great to see you. >> great to be with you and john and kate, as well. >> mayor, you sent a letter recently to vice president biden as he was working on his gun control proposals. you had some suggestions for him. what did you say? >> we need universal background checks. 40% of all the gun sales don't require a background check because they're private sales. we need to toughen our gun laws. we need assault weapons ban. we need to make sure that we deal with gun trafficking and what they call straw purchasers. these are people that buy guns legall
that in an inaugural address? >> it's a little bit surprising, but given his history, the obama administration's history with the repeal of don't ask, don't tell and also his revolution of gay marriage, it's not that surprising. >> what about you, greg? you were surprised he specifically mentioned stonewall. >> i was surprised that he mentioned stonewall because it's not something you hear when they talk about civil rights, especially from a president, so that really struck me when he said that. >> what do you think it does for gay people not only in this country but around the world? >> i hope it pushes us forward and makes us equal with everyone else, included with everyone else in the country. >> do you feel an additional sense of pride having heard the president mention that today? >> yes, i do. i really do. it makes me feel good to be an american right now and makes me think things will be better in the future. >> thanks pho boto both of you, thanks to the students from kentucky who stood around and waite waited. for you, it was really a speech about better equality? >> i think speeches a
years with the obama administration with cbs. we've seen the results of that conflict of interest play out when questions are asked. >> steve: where he writes in slate, the lefty blog u got to destroy the republican party. i guess he just wants one party which would essentially make it a dictatorship. in the article he's blaming all the woes in washington on those darn republicans. i guess he's forgotten about the do nothing democrats in the u.s. senate, who haven't passed a budget in three years. i guess he forgot about the fact that the republicans actually are now talking about voting tomorrow on extending the debt limit so there is not a fight. and about how about a month ago, they raised taxes on the rich. he's forgetting all about that. he's just trying to help barak obama with a successful four years. >> right. he makes this argument in piece that republicans have been the ones standing in the way of president obama's first term agenda. if i recall correctly, president obama has spent a lot of money, there hasn't been a lotting spending cuts at all, in fact. president obama got
biden pledged that the obama administration would make sure that future infrastructure investments are more targeted to local areas. in november, last year, the vice president hosted our leadership in the white house to discuss the fiscal cliff and the concerns of mayors regarding both investment programs and tax-exempt financing. issueer there's a major that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. and that is why i was certainly heartened when president obama asked vice president biden to lead a special task force to develop responses to the tragedy not only at sandy hook elementary school, but the daily tragedies we see all across america. the nation's mayors and vice president biden have stood together for many, many years in support of public safety. after all, it was then-senator joe biden who championed the crime bill, which established the cops program and included the ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, which congress unfortunately, all
of that effort, and we will be. >> and what is the united states government, the obama administration willing to do to be part of that effort of the french invasion of mali? >> well, you know, it's important to see an international effort. there are european countries that will be helping on training and other steps. and the united states is helping as well. we're helping on airlift and intelligence support. we'll look at other ways to try to provide assistance, as well as training. this has to be an international effort, because frankly, al-queda is an international threat. the best way to handle this now is to have all of these countries working together to do everything we can to stop al-queda. >> mr. secretary, you do not imagine u.s. fighting forces being involved in mali alongside the french at this point? >> no, i don't see troops on the ground. but i do see the kind of assistance that will help the french and ultimately help the african nation go into mali and really provide more permanent security there. >> what are some of the national security threats over the next four years and n
" interview in which mcchrystal slammed obama and members of the administration, he was forced to resign. he said he did not end as he would have wished. today he says he has moved on with his life and is now free to speak his mind. >> afghanistan is hard. it's always been hard. if you study their history, it's never anything but complex and difficult. >> i spent a career carrying typically an m-16 and later an m-4 carbine. i personally don't think there is any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets, and particularly in and around the schools in america. i like the fact that chuck hagel has had his feet in the mud as a soldier. i like the fact that he's had a lot of background. >> joining me now is the former top commander in afghanistan, retired general stanley mcchrystal. he has a brand-new memoir called "my share of the task." general, nice to see you. >> good to see you, chuck. >> we have heard you on a number of topics. it was interesting on the assault weapon. i want to start with what's going on in north africa and mali. and i know you know about as much as we do when it comes
in the community. >> when you look at the last administration who never went in the community. >> the obama who made the most impact is michelle. you have seen her doing a lot more work at schools between her gardens that she has at the whitehouse, you know, that has local school kids. she has been to places like anacostia high school. i can't remember the name of the movie but the child obesity movement has put her in direct contact with a lot more of this community, i think, than anything the president has done, which is fine. there is nothing wrong with that. he showed up at the chili bowl once, i believe with the former may. that was the end of that. at that couple of restaurants but i would say michelle is the one who has the most impact on the city. i have no problem with that. >> ted's bulletin. she has been to good stuff, just down the street. that barbecue joint. >> ken income's. >> dickies is off h street. >> i am trying to think. i am where it is. i can walk on to it. the fish shall sandwich is understanding it a little bit. four pieces of fish on top
administration. ms. hyde was nominated by president obama and confirmed by the u.s. senate in 2009 as the administrator of samhsa. she has served as a state mental health director, state human services director, city housing and human services director, as well as ceo of a private, nonprofit managed behavioral health firm. she is a member of or has served as consultant to many national organizations including the john d. and catherine t. macarthur foundation, the american college of mental health administration, and the united states department of justice. our second witness is no stranger to this committee. dr. thomas insel, director of the national institute of mental health at the national institutes of health. he has been director since the fall of 2002. prior to that, he was professor of psychiatry at emory university, and he was the founding director for the center of behavioral neuroscience, one of the largest science and behavioral centers funded by the national science foundation. he has published over 250 scientific articles and four books, including "biology of parental
barack obama as one of the areas where he has done significant work on behalf of the administration in this first four years and we'll continue on those interests going forward. it's an interesting thing jennifer in global diplomacy economics is becoming a far more meaningful element of global diplomacy. there is now an assistant secretary of state that focuses on energy issues, and i think senator kerry will continue this dialogue because it is really a foundation. hillary clinton promoted the concept of commercial diplomacy and i think senator kerry agrees with that emphasis. >> jennifer: i totally agree. we'll see what happens on keystone. but there is another issue that he'll have to deal with with respect to our place in the world, and that's the u.s.' use of drones. i guess they'll launch an investigation into u.s. drone policy. does the u.s. need to be more transparent on the issue in your opinion? >> i really do think so. and i think john brennan in his time at the white house, and presuming he moves over to the central intelligence agency, i think he philosophically has tha
in the administration a man of integrity. former obama aide was chief domestic policy adviser. >> dennis traveled extensively with the president. when you spend day in and day out with someone in a high stakes, very stressful set of circumstances, you get to know them well. i think they think very similarly but at the same time they are very straightforward and honest with each other. dennis isn't afraid to challenge the president. >> barns said that while m mcdonough is known for his foreign policy shops, he will be able to handle the issues. and he knows how capitol hill works. something that will be crucial in the coming fiscal fights. now, the suspected announcement comes as the president is criticized for a lack of diversity among to have staffers. his choices for secretary of defense, secretary of defense, secretary of treasury and cia director are all men. wolf? >> athena jones at the white house with the latest on that, an important position indeed. thank you. >>> monday's inauguration is a big day for president obama. historic day for the entire country. it's also a
for straw purchases of guns. today of course president barack obama and vice president biden released the administration's plan to reduce gun violence, both through new legislation and executive action. i was honored to be at the white house earlier today for that release and i can tell you that the administration clearly listened closely to the recommendations which the mayors have offered. the nation's mayors urge the congress to give that report full consideration and to move swiftly forward on the legislative action that it requires. we know that preventing gun violence, whether it is mass shootings in a school or murder on a street corner will take much more than just strengthening our gun laws. we need to reverse the culture of violence in our nation so that violent acts are not the first response of settling a difference or compensating for a wrong. we need to strengthen and more adequately fund our mental health system so we can identify troubled individuals earlier and get them the help that they need. lastly, in addition to -- in addition, i personally support the creation o
economic recovery and economic prosperity in america. they feel president obama is not getting behind this surplus we have. you heard the caller touch upon that when he mentioned what happened, on the moratorium on drilling. it was contested in court and the administration lost that fight. there is a question about how much obama will get behind that. yesterday he talked about climate change and other things. i think the next four years may be tough for energy producers. guest: natural gas has become so plentiful and prices have come down so much that is changing a lot of the economics of the energy industry. that plays right into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than coal begins to replace coal as the primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that oil and gas production is higher than it has ever been and that is true as the economy comes back but there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and a job poli
, and the administration lost that. the question about how much obama will get behind that. he did not mention it yesterday in his speech. he talked about climate change and suggested going in the opposite direction. the next four years may be a tough one for energy producers. guest: shall pass has become so plentiful and prices of it -- natural gas has become so plentiful and prices of it has come down so much it is changing the economics of the industry, which plays into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than cold begins to replace coal as a primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that will and gas production is higher than it has ever been, and that is true as the economy comes back. there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and job policy. that is one of the reasons why obama takes every opportunity he can to point out this clean energy proposal, because don't wait politically that the white house sees an opportunity to
